Great sounds on this record. This is right up my alley. Reminds me of some of the best stuff from the old Enigma and Slash labels. Nice work! Love the drums and bass especially.

Sorry for the lateness, but this news hit me like a ton of bricks when it happened. I got really into Dan Hicks a couple of years ago. "I Scare Myself" is such a great song and recording, as are all his others. A true original.

This should be on a movie soundtrack. Maybe a sequel to A Life Aquatic. Great sound design. Very spring reverby, natch.

That's a cool recording. Nicely psychedelic. I also very much like the Sesame Street ensemble at 2:20. That's just CRAZY and weird. You should do this sort of thing much more often. It's pretty fantastic.

Re: Michael Daves - Orchids and Violence out on Nonesuch

Holy crap, that's cool! I like the sludgy versions best, but that's just my taste. Sounds really great though - nice and clear mix. Songs translate strangely well across versions.

one of my favorite bands (besides GBV) is from here Lab Partners. and Maëry Lanahan is incredible too.

i'm just a homebody, so i don't hang around the local studios. they wouldn't have me anyway, it's been nearly 15 years now since i went to TRW. i'm happy doing my own thing.

i love the Marshalls. they sound great for being so cheap. i got my MXL990 for about $100 new. it's no-frills, for sure, but it's cheap and it does its job nicely.

like [just about] any condensor mic, you'll need phantom power if you get one.

Re: recording drum machine to tape question (ghost beats)

either that or there's a mic picking it up from someone's cans. see if you can isolate it to a track. just go through and solo each track. you'll probably hear it on one (possibly two) tracks. might have to re-record them! if you don't hear it while soloing tracks, then it might not have printed... ...
